According to the old saying, time flies when you’re having fun. The same thing happens when you’re in a state of flow.
That’s the term coined by the psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Flow describes an experience where you lose yourself in what you’re doing. You feel totally immersed and engaged.
There are even changes in your brain activity, like increased dopamine levels that are associated with enjoyment and motivation.
If you’ve experienced the exhilaration for yourself, you probably want more such moments. Try this foolproof formula for finding your sense of flow.
